    Brookelynne26's Note:

    From a cooking class handout, the original recipe was developed by John Ash. The recipe author suggests using a ready made laksa paste by Reuben Solomon as a shortcut.

    Laksa Paste

    • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce (or to taste, Lee Kum Kee is a good brand)
    • 1/3 cup chopped shallot
    • 1/3 cup chopped and toasted macadamia nuts (or use blanched almonds)
    • 1/4 cup peeled and finely chopped ginger
    • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds, crushed
    • 2 tablespoons fish sauce (nam pla)
    • juice and zest from 2 lime
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk, well stirred



    1. 1
      Make the Paste: Add all ingredients except coconut milk to a blender and process for a minute or two or until very smooth. Add mixture to a small saucepan and cook over moderate heat for 4 - 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Should be very fragrant. Stir in coconut milk and cook for 2- 3 minutes more.
